While the Atlanta Falcons might still be considered underdogs against the Seahawks in week three it is a coin toss of a game that will be one of Atlanta’s best chances this season to steal a win. Two weeks into the Atlanta Falcons season and already there has been another epic collapse and another heartbreaking game where the Falcons fell just short.
The Seahawks are sitting at 1-1 on the season, however, their one win was an emotional one against their former quarterback. While the details have been sparse one thing is clear, former Seahawks and current Seahawks had a lot of ill will towards Russell Wilson.
Beating Wilson was Seattle’s Super Bowl and an outlier for their season. San Francisco predictably beat Seattle easily in week two.
Whether or not they admit it Seattle is rebuilding and not anything close to a contender this season. The only reason to believe this team can win games this season is based on their head coach and skill at the receiver position. They are elite at receiver but need depth at nearly every other position including the most important position on the field.
The clear first reason the Atlanta Falcons are going to be able to stay in this game and have a chance to win their first game of the season.
